V is for Victorious

Hi Everyone--
My post for Alphabet Thursday is a serious one this week.

There is a blogger named Betty at
No, I don't know her, but I read about her yesterday on Jenny
Matlock's blog.

Betty's son, Reid is very ill and facing a serious surgery and
we bloggers are being asked to send cards to the hospital to
cheer him up...I read about Reid yesterday and mailed
a special tag I made for him today.

If you would like to mail Reid a card, it would be very appreciated.
Here is his info.

Reid Martin

c/o MD Anderson Cancer Center

Room 1741

1515 Holcombe Boulevard

Houston, TX 77030

Why did I say that "'V' is for 'victorious?'" Because I hope that Reid will be victorious over this illness and come through this ordeal with restored health.

If you would like to see a picture of Reid and read about the story of this young man, you can visit his mom's blog.

Thanks so much!

I will go and visit, Cindy. MD Anderson is the other hospital we were considering for Jud and is a very good place. I am anxious to see Reid's picture and make a tag or card!
I like "Victorious"!

Thanks for sharing this. Yes I will make and send a card right away. Gee I wish I still lived in Houston I would go for a visit. If there are any bloggers that can His parents could use a basket of goodies while sitting at the hospital. We have been through a lot of hospital stays and know that vending machines and fast food sure add up!

Praying for a Victorious healing

It's so nice of you to help spread the word.

Jenny said...

Oh cindy, you just made me cry.

Thank you for spreading the word of this. I had an e-mail from Betty saying how weak Reid is and how he opens a card when he has the strength and energy and each one makes him feel better.

Generosity of spirit like this really makes me feel our world has a chance.

And I feel so blessed that you shared this here.

Thank you.

Hugs and hugs and hugs and...
